The True Cost of Cheap Hosting

At $10 a month, shared hosting (or an unmanaged virtual server) may seem like a bargain. But neither is designed to keep WordPress sites consistently secure, fast, and up-to-date. Neither include all the hidden costs you’d be billed for because your $10 hosting plan doesn’t have a development and testing environment, reliable backups, and a reasonable and secure manner for developers to collaborate on a project. The true costs of hosting can add up to thousands of dollars a year for ongoing maintenance and troubleshooting.

Squeeze More ROI from Your Investment

Every dollar you spend on web development should contribute to the growth of your business. Using open-source CMSes like WordPress brings you closer to that goal, as developers don’t need to start from scratch. However, they must still spend many hours on system administration. Pantheon allows you to funnel 100% of your investment in web development directly to the high-value features and strategy that grow your business. And not just while your website is in development, but for its entire lifetime.

The Fastest Platform for Websites. Period.

Your business performance depends on your website performance. For every second visitors wait, conversions drop 7 percent. Pantheon is tuned to deliver the fastest performance possible. Third-parties like Loadstorm rate Pantheon as #1 in performance and reliability. The platform is so ridiculously fast that sites migrating from generic hosting see dramatic speed boosts instantly.

Be Impervious to Website Attacks

If you never want to be hacked, Pantheon is the platform of choice. Pantheon makes continuous platform-wide upgrades so you don’t need to look into Heartbleed, Internet Doomsday, or other risks du jour. Pantheon also enables us at CatchFire to quickly update your site in one click. No site that follows security best practices on Pantheon has ever been hacked, despite millions of attempts across tens of thousands of sites.

Want to make some improvements to your site? Identical environments keep work-in-progress separate from your live site, so you’ll never need to see screenshots or hand-drawn wireframes to know what we are up to. See the test site exactly as it will appear when it’s live. Developers used to spend billable hours configuring these environments by hand. Now those hours can go straight into your features wish list.
